On Sunday, we celebrated Pentecost, the "birth" of our Church.
Take a look at our menu:
I thought of Buffalo Wings to give us "Tongues of Fire" and also because wings would represent the Dove which is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. I already had chicken thighs, so we had those instead of the wings. I found the recipe here. It was really good. Be sure you use Frank's Red Hot Sauce. It's the best!
We also had 7 Layer Dip to represent the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Here's our 12 Fruit Salad to represent the 12 Fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Yes, we actually had 12 different kinds of fruit!
3. Mandarin Oranges
11. Grapes and
It was delicious!!
For dessert: Angel Food cake with strawberry "flames" and adorned with 12 candles to represent the Apostles and a blue candle for Mother Mary. We sang happy Birthday and ...
then came the "mighty gusts of wind".
We made this wind socket which was a great idea from Dawn. And we started making stained glass mosaics, but it was such a beautiful day that none of us wanted to stay in and finish it! Maybe later.... we also had a special guest with us. My brother's girlfriend (hopefully one day sister-in-law!) came over to hang out. The kids love it when she comes over. (Rock and I do too, of course!) I will put up more pictures in a different post. Happy Pentecost!!!!
